RE: "where did i go wrong? should i have just ignored what the boys were
doing and walked on? should i have argued the point with the guy who
was probably their father?

i feel myself turning into one of those demented old ladies who goes
around yelling at everyone...."

You don't seem demented to me! A demented person would miss more than only B's in their typing!

I think speaking up was the right thing. I'd have probably asked the adult, "Gosh, aren't you afraid they will hurt the ducks?" rather than yelling at the kids. He probably was rude to you because you yelled at his kids, and also because he was embarassed that he was letting them go wild. Of course, the kind that lets their kids run wild in the first place is the kind that probably wouldn't take it well no matter how nicely you spoke to him....

I'm disturbed because it's just mean, but also there is a correlation between cruelty to animals and becoming a sociopath later. But then again, I'm the kind who lets MOLES ravage her yard undisturbed, ruining the neighborhood...
